The modest paperback format belies the power of this book to provide a comprehensive picture of Pan Am’s heroic spanning of the Pacific, not only by air, but by the almost herculean job of building air bases on lonely atolls strung across the world’s biggest ocean. The book is thoroughly researched, and provides a collection of photographs which is just about unrivalled.
